    Default US M3 Air Crew

    Hi Friends,
    here is the latest addition to my collection, it's an US M3, complete and in very good condition for me.
    The special paint is 100% and there is also felt within the earflaps.
    Liner and chinstrap seem untouched.
    I hope it's interesting and thanks for your opinions.

    Cheers
    Roberto

    Great example, it looks unissued.

    I found an unissued one a while back.

    Superb condition very nice. I owned all 3 versions of the flak helmet from ww2 when I was younger but sold them off, which I now totally regret.

    A great example Roberto, I see a few of these around as I live in Norfolk (UK), the wartime "home" of the US 8th Air Force! Unlike your example however, most sadly have the felt ear pads missing. Well done, Leon.

    Thanks Leon,
    it's true! in your area there was a large concentration of USAAF bombers bases, I think I remember in detail, that in those parts were operational many BG equipped with B24 bombers.

    Cheers
